Sea of Clouds - Board Game Box Shot

Sea of Clouds

As captain of a flying pirate ship, recruit a cutthroat crew, collect relics, and unearth the best rum by gathering shares of Loot. Then send your pirates aboard enemy ships to plunder their treasure!

In each round of the game, players take turns divvying up shares of Loot to gain Rum, Relics, Objects, and Pirates. In some rounds, when ships are flying close together, they will also clash in a Boarding action, using the effects of any Pirates they recruited to gain Doubloons and plunder Loot.

The game ends after 12 (or 15) rounds. Players then add the value of their Doubloons and their Loot cards to determine the winner.

“Forecast: Cloudy with a chance of pirates”

Sea of Clouds is an interesting deck-building style game in which you get to collect “loot” of rum, crew, and artifacts that will add up to victory points in the end of the game.

This is a fairly good filler game because it doesn’t take very long, especially if everyone knows how to play. The mechanics are relatively simple- pick up a pile, if you don’t like it or want the contents, move onto a different pile, leaving another card so the next person might get more out of it.

There are also “battles” in which you might get to steal cards or dubloons from other players or the “bank”. This makes the game more interesting because it is the only real interaction you have with other players. Otherwise you are just building your piles loot around your personal board.

There is quite a bit of chance in this game. For example, you might get a treasure box card that lets you get lots of victory points for having a certain amount of rum or doubloons or artifacts by the end of the game, but then you don’t have an opportunity to get those things later on. If you do get them, they can really make or break your score.

Overall, this game is okay. It is nice that it is so simple and you only have one deck of cards to keep track of. However, I feel like something is missing. There is no way to differentiate the characters, for example. Also, I don’t much care for having to tally up all the points in the end.
